Why? It's nowhere near the greatest kit of all time. Iconic for Widnes fans, but pretty bland, in the big scheme of things.

Why not?  It's iconic of a great era in Widnes Rugby League history.

It's unfussy and classic.  There are lots of Widnes kits I haven't liked but this one resonates for many reasons.

Things like this/fave player/voting on any rubbish reality show. Ohhh vote this one cos it's local etc.

Here's a thought, why not just vote for the one that you like the best.....?

I'm not really a kit fan myself, don't understand the fuss.

Yeah I'm with you on this. Our most successful team just used to run around in a plain white jersey you could have picked up in Foster Brothers.

I think really all it is about is a bit of fun for the fans  while we're in shutdown.  Nothing to really worry about.

For me, the kit is emotive as it brings up memories of watching Widnes at their peak.  I also think it's simplicity is what makes it smart.

Think we are up against some Hull shirt.

We lost, but we were never going to win considering the number of people who support Hull vs those who support Widnes.  Plus the Hull shirt is pretty snappy anyway.
